Peggy Allan and her husband said they were in the area and heard the commotion.

“I looked down the street and there was every vehicle in town here,” said Allan.

The Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office said the 28-year-old was shot multiple times as he was leaving someone’s house.

One witness told Boston 25 News he heard at least six shots.

“We saw the guy walk out, he took about 12 steps and collapsed on the ground,” the witness said. “I just stuck with him until the fire department got there.”

An aunt told us Shakim worked at a nearby Dominos and spent time in the area.

Workers at the Dominos told Boston 25 News Shakim was off on Sunday.

Shakim’s aunt wrote to Boston 25 News and said, “Shakim was a young man filled with love, compassion and ambition. His many friends and colleagues would attest to his character and work ethic. He was taken from us cowardly and we will not rest until justice is served.”

The district attorney’s office told Boston 25 News the shooter left the scene and it appears this was not a random shooting so others in the area are not in danger.

Investigators would not share any potential motives.
